Three months out, the Knocked Up trailer has been released. I'm not sure if I hadn't worked on the show how I would feel about the trailer. From what I know, it definitely seems like they're playing up the "heart" and not the laughs in the trailer, because don't be fooled, there is a lot of gross out funny humor in this one. I have read the script, but that doesn't mean much because a lot the film was improvised, so I'm sure the jokes will be new to me. I really admired, how Seth Rogen and best his best friend Evan Goldberg have casually planted an anchor in the comedy world, writing and producing on both Knocked Up and the teen/slacker comedy Super Bad. I will say that my experience with Judd Apatow was very limited, but ultimately disappointing. I thought Judd would be the kind of director who is bright and friendlly with everyone, but he wasn't. But it seems like he's doing something right, as I believe this one will play to big audiences come June 1. Check out the trailer for yourself, here.
